Thread: Is this powerbook a good buy?
01-26-2006, 11:21 PM #1pixelpeeperGuestIs this powerbook a good buy?
I have a chance to buy a 3 year old 15" powerbook g4, 867, 512, combo, 40 gig for 800.00. Said was throwing in extras. Also I am looking for a notebook that can handle photoshop. I know it could probably use a ram upgrade to be better. This notebook is in good condition, and supposedly has 7 months of apple care left on it. Is this a good deal considering that I can get a 12" refurb for 1099.00?

If this is the Titanium it is not a good buy. My Dad had a titanium for 3 years (2002-2005) and it wasn't doing so well by the time he bought a new model.
If the 12" is the Aluminum model go for it, your saving 400 dollars.

Seems a little pricey to me. I would just save up the extra cash for the refurbed 12" myself.__________________________________________________
